Clean of Heart

I spent the afternoon yesterday at Clean of Heart, a new facility that was opened in Columbia by the organization I work for.  Clean of Heart is a laundry and shower facility for the homeless.  It is amazing! It has three washing machines and three dryers, and two shower stalls.  The people in the Midlands Office in Columbia and their volunteers, as well as all the workers who put the place together did an awesome job! I am proud to say I had even the smallest part in making that happen. 

Too often, the homeless in Columbia have to throw away their clothing once it's badly soiled, and bathe in places they shouldn't.  This gives them the opportunity to change that.  They may even be able to work on their appearance enough that they can feel confident enough to apply for and interview for jobs.  Not only that, but it gives them back some basic human dignity.  It is truly a wonderful ministry!

Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God.  Matthew 5:8
